Herding dog, Herd That: Can a Hidden Fence Work for a Herding Dog?

Herd That: Can a Hidden Fence Work for a Herding Dog?

Herding dogs are energetic, loyal, focused, and intelligent. These dogs are happiest when they have a job to do and do best with plenty of room to run. They require an above-average amount of daily exercise and get bored quickly if they aren’t given enough tasks or engaging activities. 

When herding dogs aren’t given enough to do, they become anxious, resulting in excessive barking or destructive tendencies such as chewing or digging. Due to their genetic makeup, herding dogs also possess a high prey drive, which can sometimes make keeping them on your property difficult.

Due to these factors, herding dog owners often assume that a hidden fence is not an option. However, a DogWatch® Hidden Fence won’t only keep your herding dog safe, the freedom to roam their yard will keep them happy. Here’s how!

Can A Hidden Fence Work For A Hunting Dog?

Pointers and Setters, Spaniels and Whippets, hunting dogs come in all shapes, sizes, and breeds. Different breeds of hunting dogs share one similarity: they’re bred to hunt alongside humans. Dogs have been hunting with humans for thousands of years, and there’s evidence that this relationship reaches back to prehistoric times.

Hunting dogs are athletic, loyal, intelligent, eager to please, and typically have tremendous stamina. These attributes often prove invaluable during a hunt. Breeds that fall into this category also possess a strong predatory drive.

When their prey drive is triggered, these dogs can find themselves in hazardous situations. When chasing prey your dog could end up in the middle of a busy street, on someone else’s property, in hunting territory, or even lost. A Hidden Fence from DogWatch® is a great way to ensure that your hunting dog stays safely on your property. Read post »

Can a Hidden Fence Work for a Terrier?

Terriers are known to be energetic, fearless, and independent. They seem to be on high alert at all times and can be reactive to even the slightest disturbance. Terriers are also known to be diggers and escape artists with a penchant for exploring their surroundings and occasionally resulting in a run-away dog. Terriers do not hesitate to stand up to larger dogs, and that can cause owners a great deal of anxiety when their four-legged family members get out.

Because of their high energy levels, escape skills, and desire to investigate yards of neighbors, terrier owners often assume that a hidden fence is not an option for them. Penny, a long-time DogWatch® customer from DogWatch® of Mid-Canada, thought just the same. Read post »
